Broncos replace Tebow

Manning is a Bronco. What does this mean? it means I won't be watching tv for a few weeks. I'll miss Tebow, class act.

Maybe it means Tebow will become a Jag. They need some help and are a run-first team where he will fit in perfectly. And it's him home town. Plus it's close to where he went to college and still has TONS of fans!! (If you didn't pick it up, I'm a GATOR!)

Maybe Manning is just a very serious horse lover . . .95 million dollar contracts might help.

Tebow and Romo, the ultimate combo.

Meh, I enjoy listening to all the people at work vent about the decision. It is quite hilarious.

Wait, they wanted to stick with Timmy as the starting QB?

I'm affraid for Manning. Denver's O-line is horrendous. Tebow was running for his life almost the whole season. I have a feeling that Manning is going to have a short, career-ending season. Who's going to be #2 in Denver if Tebow leaves?

The Iggles could use a good backup QB. I'll make a few calls.

It means that Manning starts his coaching career in Denver.

I guess Tebow won't be the starter headed into training camp after all.




Elway stated this a few weeks back.

I think it's a bad move for Manning. Arizona would have been a better fit.

I'm not a fan of Tebow. I don't care where he goes, I won't be watching.

Tebow's going to New England to learn how to play QB from Tom Brady.

All things I've heard from my coworkers. People are nuts about Tebow around here...

The receptionist in one of our mountain offices actually gave me this huge, five minute rant about it. I was just trying to get her to log off of her computer so that it would pick up the password change.

Tebow wouldn't have to run so much if he would learn to pass.

Careful what you wish for jsharr. I don't think either of them is that good. I'm very surprised that Dallas didn't go hard after Manning, or try to trade up for Andrew Luck (though that will now be impossible).

I think Manning should have gone to SF. I hope they re-sign Alex Smith and win the superbowl.

I was hoping the Cowboys would offer Romo AND their first round pick for one of the top two picks. I'm ready for Romo to hit the road.

I'll get on my knee and pray for Tebow "oh Lord, please give Tim a multi-million dollar contract on a better team, one that needs more Christians as part of the spectacle"

Tebow's a phony and a showboat.

Tebow was first to say his purpose was to spend time with the sick, the dying, the brain damaged and the re-tarded before the game (and during the week), and the game came second. that might make him a lousy quarterback but it also makes him one of the most outstanding players to come around.

Manning is smart enough not to consider playing for Jerry Jones. Romo isn't. Even Tebow is better than Romo.

Apparently, he is soon to be a subject of a taylor swift song, because he refused to service her, due to jesus or something.

SF probably would have worked too. I was thinking AZ just because of the dome, good recievers and less pressure to have a super bowl run right away. I'm wondering how he's going to feel at mile high in December.
